Way to go ACC Exercise Stars! We wrapped up another successful eight week program. Participation was up by 22% and 89% of you reached your goal. That’s commitment. Hopefully, this kicked started a regular exercise habit for our employees.
As we all know, our exercise minutes didn’t just count for us personally, it helped move our campus along in a ‘healthy competition’. Dr. Rhodes recognized the ‘Most Active Campus’ during a ceremony in mid April.

Congratulations to our top three Most Active Campuses –
